The first 250 LSU students at the event will receive a Mike VII T-shirt. Students must show their tiger card to receive the shirt.

Mike VII, formerly known as Harvey, arrived on campus last week and was officially introduced as LSU's new live mascot on Monday. The tiger, an 11-month-old Bengal-Siberian mix, was donated from the Wild at Heart Wildlife Center in Florida.
